Tensions were high after Argentina secured a penalty shootout win over Holland – after drawing 2-2 in extra-time – before footage showed the two clashing.
In the clip, the Dutch striker is seen standing in the tunnel – seemingly waiting for something or someone – before Agüero enters the frame and starts yelling: ‘Shut up!’
Weghorst was left bemused by the retired star’s instructions and quickly barked back at him. He claimed he was waiting to shake the hand of someone – likely an Argentina player or a match official.
Argentina duo Lisandro Martinez and Lautaro Martinez both intervened and attempted to diffuse the situation before Agüero was pulled to one side.

He shared another lighthearted message when a fan asked how his heart was feeling – given the fact he retired due to a heart condition – to which he replied: ‘The doctor wrote to me several times, so imagine.’
